Voices Against Violence was launched on September 10, 2016 in the form of a series of candlelight vigils (over 300 nationwide) in Guyana to mark World Suicide Prevention Day. The focus was on violence since not only is suicide violence against self but other forms of violence - rape. incest, teenage pregnancy, dysfunctional relationships, drugs use, alcoholism, domestic violence, child abuse, trafficking, interpersonal relationships and so on - are connected to suicide. Thus address the root - violence - will lead to a positive impact on suicide and the other manifestations of violence.

The success of the candlelight vigil led to a decision to make Voices Against a monthly event with a different focus each month. So October was designated 'Voices Against Violence Month of Prayers' with October 30 dubbed  NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER. The focus for November is domestic violence while December will focus on youth self esteem, self worth and coping skills.
